A pro-choice Baptist “minister” from Arkansas who believes in killing infants claims that Iranian terrorist, Qassim Suleimani, was “murdered.”
In an article entitled, Murdering Qassim Suleimani and the gospel of Jesus, Wendell Griffin – a leftist activist who also serves as an Arkansas Circuit Judge – said that when Donald Trump placed the order to kill the hostile terrorist it “does not square with the gospel of Jesus.”
Qassim Suleimani, a general in the Iranian military and former leader of the Qud terrorist group (designated a terrorist group by the United States government), is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi Citizens, thousands of American soldiers, and tens of thousands of Iranian nationals.
In 1998, Suleimani took command of the Quds Force — the Guard’s extraterritorial terrorist wing — and bombed a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people.
In 2003, he orchestrated the bombing of three residential compounds in Riyadh, killing 35 people, including 9 Americans. In 2004, Suleimani began flooding Iraq with lethal roadside bombs, which retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal said “killed hundreds of Americans.”
In 2005, he killed the former Lebanese prime minister, Rafik Hariri, and 21 others in a massive car bombing in Beirut, which the CIA said he was at the center of. In 2006, Hezbollah operatives abducted and killed Israeli soldiers in an operation that was carried out with Suleimani’s help. The conflict that followed killed tens of thousands.
And yet, Baptist Minister Wendell Griffen says Donald Trump “murdered” the terrorist.
He writes, “Jesus, who Mike Pompeo claims to believe and follow as personal Savior, rejected the conventional wisdom (of his time and now) that enemies should be hated. Instead, Jesus taught his followers to “[l]ove your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you so that you may be children of your Father in heaven…” (Matthew 5:43-45). So how was killing Suleimani in line with that mandate?”
Griffen asks, “How does killing an enemy who was not trying to kill you square with the gospel of Jesus, who taught “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9)?”
The harsh truth is that Mike Pompeo counseled Donald Trump to murder Suleimani contrary to the gospel of Jesus.
Griffen’s Jesus is not the Jesus of the Bible, who instructed the Apostle Paul in Romans 13 to teach that the government’s job is to bear the sword against the wicked (Peter taught the same thing in 1 Peter 2).
The simple lesson to learn from Wendell Griffen is that the leftists’ Jesus is a different Jesus. Theirs is a Jesus who calls abortion a choice and calls the extermination of deadly thugs “murder.” It’s an upside-down idol Christ.
Let's STOP the Modern Day Downgrade
“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A.
